‘The Perfect Match’ is a Giclée Print with Silkscreen varnish by contemporary artist Galzilla. From a limited edition of 50 the print is signed and numbered by the artist.
Neither man nor monster, contemporary UK artist Galzilla - a self-professed “image eater” - works an insightful, twenty-first century social commentary into her eye-catching art. Exploring the cult of the consumer, Galzilla brings the themes of 1960s Pop-Art up-to-date, with an attention to pop culture, social media, and the internet, using collage techniques and pastiche styles to evoke the socio-political concerns of today.
In cute, illustrative style, ‘The Perfect Match’ depicts a red matchbox, emblazoned with a prancing tiger and stamped with the titular words. The box is slightly opened to reveal rows of matches, each one tipped with a little, red heart, ready to strike the flame of passion.
A clever commentary on the twenty-first century mediation of desire through consumerism, ‘The Perfect Match’ is a bright spark of contemporary print work.
